Flying Roots – International Tour
Thanks to the success of the Italian tour, the self-narrative documentary Flying Roots, is traveling all over the world, subtitled in five foreign languages, with the support of MiBACT and SIAE, as part of the “Per Chi Crea” programme.
Flying Roots is a collective self-narrative documentary about the search for self and identity that explores some urgent issues for the youths: who I am, what my origins are, what my future is. The film deals with a group of teenagers, a participatory video lab, and three second-generation stories.
The international “Flying Roots” tour includes: a series of screening, Q&A with the directors Michele Aiello, Davide Crudetti and the cast, online workshop about the power of Participatory Video.
The first screening was held in Thessaloniki, Greece in November 2020, during the “Select Respect” festival.
Due to the covid-19 emergency restrictions, the tour is taking place online, with digital screening and online workshop.
